Arya’s Shocking Scene With Gendry On ‘Game Of Thrones’ Had Viewers Freaking Out 1 phcityhype

HBO

After eight long seasons of Game of Thrones, Arya Stark’s schoolgirl crush on Gendry finally paid off. While those hunkered down at Winterfell contemplated their last night on earth ahead of a showdown with the Night King’s army, Arya decided that she didn’t want to die a virgin. And with Robert Baratheon’s bastard just happening to be on the premises, Arya took charge — and damn, home-girl really made sure that she didn’t die a virgin.

Actress Maisie Williams, now 22, later told EW that she thought it was a prank when her co-star Sophie Turner got to that part in the script before her, which wouldn’t be the first time David Benioff and Dan Weiss have pulled one over on their stars. “I was like, ‘Yo, good one.’ And [the showrunners were] like, ‘No, we haven’t done that this year.’ Oh f—k!”

But ultimately, Williams was happy to see Arya have a rare human connection, as it was “an emotion we’ve never really seen her engage with.”

It was that moment where she says, ‘We’re probably going to die tomorrow, I want to know what this feels like before that happens.’ It’s interesting to see Arya be a bit more human, speak more normally about things people are scared of.”

But Williams wasn’t the only one cheering on her character, as evidenced by the reactions online during and after the episode. Although some fans were torn between being happy for Arya and horrified to see the little girl we’ve all watched grow up release her inner woman.

At the end, Arya looked like she was about to add Gendry to her list.

I like the idea that Arya was only asking Gendry how many women he’s been with so she didn’t waste her virginity on some virgin.
